Health Care of the Elderly: An Information Sourcebook
Marilyn D. Petersen, Diana L. White
SAGE Publications, Mar 1, 1989 - Social Science - 576 pages
The literature focusing on major barriers to health care of the elderly is critically reviewed in this book. Each chapter focuses on a specific problem, examining in depth the existing information on a particular area of concern.
Following an explicit and rigorous methodology known as `information synthesis', contributors examine three categories of issues: elements, organization and delivery services in the long-term care system; social support programmes for the elderly; and clinical care issues and physician education.
